Transition Center

Transition Coordinator : Mrs. Alejandra Castrejon
Daniel K. Inouye Elementary School's Transition Center was founded in 2005 to help incoming families transition smoothly and successfully.  Since that time, our coordinators have welcomed thousands of students into our ʻohana (family).
The mission of the Transition Center is to be your information resource during this important time.  Daily orientation sessions which include an overview of school policies and procedures and campus tours are available according to the schedule below.  Our transition coordinator is also able to meet with families who cannot make the time below by appointment only.

Orientation (15 min) with Campus Tour (15 min)

Monday 11:00 am

Tuesday 10:00 am

Wed., Thursday, and Friday at 9:00 am

On your child's first day, they will be greeted with a lei in the office by our student greeters.  The greeters will escort your child to their new classroom!

We also know that transitions do not stop on the 2nd day of school.  The Transition Coordinator checks in with new students at 2, 4 & 6 weeks to make sure they are having a successful transition and is always available for questions.  They also have monthly lunch bunches to follow-up with new students in a group setting.
